Air France HOP! On Strike April 7 – 8, 2017


Several HOP! ground staff and cabin crew unions have called a strike to take place this Friday and Saturday (April 7 – 8, 2017). The airline plans to operate 85% of the scheduled short and medium-haul flights on Friday. The schedule for Saturday is still unclear.

Air France HOP

This strike will only affect short and medium- haul flights that are HOP! branded when they are not operated by Airbus planes. The airline (HOP!) operates roughly 600 flights daily to 50 destinations in France and Europe.

Here’s information what Air France has released for consumers:

What are consequences? Will my journey be impacted?

Only flights with the note “operated by HOP” may be affected by this strike. Check now the status of your flight with the link below.

As soon as we will have a more accurate estimate of the number of employees on strike and the impact on our operations, our flight schedule will be adapted accordingly and published the day before your departure.

The update of our schedule for April 07 is currently on-going.

We expect to operate 85 % of our short and medium haul flights.

Some flights may be cancelled. Furthermore, in order to ensure a maximum number of flights with a reduced crew composition, we may be forced to limit the number of passengers on board some of our flights which would mean we may not be able to honour all reservations.

Can I postpone my trip?

Without waiting, if you have a valid Air France ticket, issued on or before 05 April, for a flight operated by a HOP! aircraft between 07 and 08 April 2017, you can :

– anticipate your trip on 05 and 06 April 2017
– postpone your trip from 09 to 16 April 2017 included

Save time by changing your booking directly online, in the “Your reservations” section of the website or in the mobile app. You can change your booking at no extra cost for the same travel cabin. You can also contact your travel agent.

You may also choose to cancel your journey. In this case, you will be entitled to a non-refundable voucher valid 1 year for Air France, KLM or HOP! flights.

What should I do on the day of departure?

We invite you to check your flight status updated in real time on our website, in the section “Flight & airport info”.

Besides, we advise you to check-in online, for you and your luggage.

How do I apply for a refund for my journey? Do I need official attestation?

If your flight is cancelled or delayed by more than 5 hours and you decide not to travel, you can obtain a refund for your ticket by contacting your point of sale directly.

If you bought your ticket on our website, please click on “Refunds” section at the bottom of this page.


There have been strike related cancellations in the past few months in France, UK, Italy and Finland (perhaps elsewhere too).

The reason for this action is truly weird. The French website The Local (access here) is reporting that the reason for this action is management of pilots that are leaving to work for Air France?

Remember that EC 261/2004 duty to care applies. This means that Air France is required to rebook the affected passengers to other services and other airlines where available. The airline must provide accommodation with breakfast/lunch/dinner those with long delays.
